Checked Skirt And Fishnets.

Hello everyone. I've had this post open for about ten minutes but hadn't written anything as I got distracted by my knitting needles. I swear knitting is so addictive. Anyway, I've put them aside now but they keep looking at me.

Skirt: Ebay Then Customised 

This is an outfit I wore a couple days ago but only managed to snap today as my sister coming back from London means I haven't had the room to myself until today. I'm wearing my 'new' skirt that I got off Ebay for a only a couple quid. It was originally a wrap skirt but I trimmed both sides and added buttons after seeing one similar to this on an online shop but I cant for the life of me find it again. After getting pretty frustrated with the button holes it probably would have been easier to just buy to sodding thing. Nevertheless, I still love it. 

 I also managed to make some more dreads, I now have seven lovely baby dreads. The cream/brown wool that you can see wrapped around them is just there to keep them neat and hopefully avoid lots of loose hair. I must say I'm pretty proud of my efforts and can't wait to be a full dread head. I'll stop yabbing on about my dreads when the novelty has worn off, I promise.

Creepers: Ebay

On another note, my tripod broke. The top swivel-y bit (technical term) just snapped off, just like that. So taking these pictures was a bit of a nightmare as my camera just doesn't like to balance in a portrait fashion. Hence the landscape ones.

*I'm such an idiot*

I haven't been up to much recently other than doing a hell of a lot of tie dying. I was going to do a bit of a video tutorial on it but filming whilst dying turned out harder than I'd first anticipated. I will however share the results with you and perhaps do a written step by step so you too can jump on the tie dye bandwagon.

Other than that I haven't been up to much at all. I did clear out our summer house/shed yesterday (by clearing out I mean shoving everything in a corner to make room for more crap) and I don't think I'd ever let out such a high pitched scream. Why I screamed I hear you ask? My lovely pet cat had only gone and brought in a dead mouse! 

Dead mice aside, here's a bit of oldschool Maroon 5:

Because this is all I have been listening to for the past hour.
